This week I have spent a lot of time in my office. I am trying to clean up my blog posts and make some technical updates where needed. My office is also the hub of our household organizing so I tend to spend a lot of time in here! Sitting in one place for too long isn’t easy for me. I get easily distracted and sometimes I even get a little bored. I get up and take walks, or run up the stairs often to try to break up the monotony. But having a few simple beauty supplies on hand makes for a really nice mental break and I can check off a few self-care tasks too!

Here are my favorite office beauty supplies:

My new favorite is ellovi butter. This 6 ingredient body butter is simply amazing! I am in love with the chocolate mint! It’s calorie free chocolate and the mint gives me a little mental recharge. I apply to my hands, cuticles and elbows. It is such a great pick me up!

It is no secret I LOVE lip balm. I am a lip balm junkie always on the hunt for my next fix. I have balms stashed all over the place and all different brands. But this one, Lasting Smiles Organic Lip Balm is DELICIOUS! I am usually not a fan of peach flavored anything, but this isn’t overly “peachy.” It glides on smooth and the flavor fades quickly so I am not tempted to constantly “eat” it. I love that it is certified organic and made in the U.S.A. Plus every purchase supports cleft lip and palate surgeries for kids in need. You know how I love a product that includes charitable giving!

I may have mentioned this one before, but I love it. Staring at the screen too long causes eye fatigue. It’s a real thing- especially now that I am …ehem… older. So I keep a Caffeinator Skin Stick at my desk from Perfectly Posh. The lemon scent is uplifting while the caffeine in it fights off purple rings and puffiness under my eyes. It’s a win-win product for me!

I am so in love with using lemon for a mood lifter! Sometimes working from home can feel a little isolating. So to keep my mood up to write all these perky posts I rely on scents that help set the mood. Perfectly posh Honey Honey Lemon body cream is so silky and refreshing! It is truly my newest addiction right now!

There ya have it! The real deal products that I use every day to check off that self care/beauty routine, and help keep me energized through my time in the office!

  1. I am a lotion and chap stick fan, so I will have to check these out! That body butter is at the top of my list of things to try, it sounds great!

  2. That ellovi balm looks really cool – and I want to try! I also have about a dozen lip glosses and balms all over the office, my bags, my bathroom… everywhere! But yet, I need more!

  3. I am always looking for a good chap stick that doesn’t burn, my kids get such horrible rashes around their mouths in the winter.

  4. I have chapstick all over the house too! And also Thai menthol inhalers. I also have like a fresh lemony spray-thing that I use to freshen up when Im getting bored! All the best, Orana

  5. Hmmm. I work from home so… but when I did have an office, I always kept clear nail polish on hand and a small can of hairspray. I could make miracles happen with those two things!

  6. These products all sound amazing, and the butter is my favorite. There’s something AMAZING about body butter all over the body and on the lips 😉 I need to try these!

  7. I have heard about putting tea bags under your eyes for puffiness but using a Caffeinator Skin Stick seems a little more office friendly! I’d like to try that out.

  8. These all sound Fabulous! I love chap stick and have some available at all times, can’t wait to try this!

  9. I have EOS lip balm in my desk drawer, and I think lotion on every surface in my home (I work from home), so those are my top two definitely! And coffee…does that count 😉

  10. Ooooo, mint chocolate body butter?! That sounds right up my alley, and so festive for the upcoming winter! Chapstick is definitely a must-have for me, my lips are NOOOT happy without it, hah. Thanks so much for sharing! <3
